Do you have Celtic Roots?

A DNA test by iGENEA provides you with evidence of whether you have Celtic roots. Based on your specific genetic characteristics, we can identify your origins and state from which line the Celtic descent is (paternal, maternal or both lines). In addition, your profile is compared with more than 700,000 people in our database. If we find a genetic match, i.e., people with whom you correspond to a certain degree, then you have the opportunity to contact these people and intensify your family research.

The genetic profile of the Celts discovered

The Celts were an Indo-European people of ancient times who originally came from the Alpine area and adjacent regions. The Celts spread from there to many parts of Europe, especially throughout Western Europe. Genetic studies now make it possible for us to distinguish the Celts from their neighbouring peoples not only linguistically and culturally, but also on the basis of their DNA.

2,000 saliva samples from 25 regions now regarded as typically Celtic were analysed. The subjects came from areas in Brittany, Scotland and Ireland, where Gaelic or other Celtic languages are still spoken to this day. This made it possible to identify genetic profiles that occur very frequently in these regions and therefore, are indicative of Celtic origin. Moreover, the migration of these genetic lines corresponds with the migration of the Celts.

Researching Celtic origins

Carriers of the same or similar genetic characteristics are summarised by haplogroup. Haplogroups represent the various branches of Homo sapiens and show the roots and movement of our ancestors. Thus, belonging to certain haplogroups is also an indication of Celtic descent.

Clarification of other ancient tribes by iGENEA

By Ancient tribes, we refer to peoples from ancient times who are defined not only by their own language, culture and history, but also by their own DNA profile. An origins analysis by iGENEA determines your Ancient tribe by means of your haplogroup and genetic profile. The result refers roughly to the period between 900 BC and 900 AD.
